With district meetings approaching, RMA is reminding members of the important role resolutions play in guiding the association’s advocacy efforts. To maximize these efforts, having well-written resolutions that are clear, concise, and include pertinent information is essential.
When is the resolution deadline for the Spring 2020 Convention?
The deadline to submit resolutions for the Spring 2020 Convention is 4:00 pm on February 21, 2020
Complete, district-approved, or individual resolutions MUST be emailed in Microsoft Word format to wyatt@RMAlberta.com
by this deadline.
What makes a good RMA resolution?
- Resolutions should address issues that are provincial in scope and not focus on local issues.
- Resolutions should influence legislative changes that will impact rural municipalities.
- The issue identified in a resolution should clearly demonstrate that RMA is the best organization to advocate on moving it forward.
- The structure of resolutions is important. They must have a title, preamble, operative clause and member background.
